In a message to his Afghan counterpart on Saturday, Ali Shamkhani extended condolences to the Afghanistan people and the government over the attacks which killed dozens of Muslim worshipers on Friday, IRNA reported.
“Takfiri terrorism, which is, unfortunately, supported by… some regional countries, is a major threat to Islamic nations and countries, and can only be confronted through cooperation and adoption of common approaches,” he said.
The cultural campaign against the ideologies that created terrorist groups like Daesh should continue concurrently with military actions against the terror groups, the official added.
Suicide bombers struck two mosques in Afghanistan during Friday prayers, a Shia mosque in Kabul and a Sunni mosque in western Ghor Province, killing nearly 90 people including children at the end of a deadly week for the troubled nation.
The Daesh terrorist group claimed responsibility for the Kabul attack.
On Saturday, terrorists targeted Afghan security forces, killing at least 15 Army trainees in a suicide attack in the capital, the country’s Defense Ministry said.
